Nick Kyrgios called "selfish" German Alexander Zverev, seen at a party when he had promised to spend 14 days in quarantine after his participation in the Adria Tour of Novak Djokovic.
"I wake up and I still see controversial news all over the world. One that struck me was seeing Sacha Zverev, again him, again, again ... But how can one be so selfish? "Said the volcanic Australian on Instagram.

But to me the silence of the other 100+ ATP players is far louder and more telling. pic.twitter.com/guj2JjRZuS
Zverev participated in the Adria Tour, exhibition tournament across the Balkans organized by Novak Djokovic, with public and without distancing, during which several players including the world number 1 were contaminated by the coronavirus.
If the German tested negative, he had promised in a statement to isolate himself for 14 days. But this weekend, a viral video on social media showed him partying in a bar full of people.

"If you have the nerve to make a tweet written by your teams on your behalf which says that you are going to quarantine yourself for 14 days and apologizes to the public for putting their health at risk, at least have the courage to stay home for 14 days, damn it, "fumes Kyrgios.
"The world of tennis pisses me off," said the Australian, who is not having his first spat with Zverev.
